With a short field, this was the ideal time for the offense to produce when the team needed it the most. He easily could have taken a bow. On the game's final play, with one whip of his right arm, Franks rolled out to his right and dropped a perfectly thrown 63-yard bomb to the end zone and into the waiting hands of Gator receiver Tyrie Cleveland .
He engineered a fourth-quarter touchdown drive culminating in a spectacular DeAndre Hopkins catch to secure an unlikely victory against a previously unbeaten Cincinnati outfit at Paul Brown Stadium. The Texans would love to get Lamar Miller and the running game going to help Watson settle in, and maybe they can do it against a Cincinnati defense that allowed 157 yards on the ground to Baltimore.
But in recent games, Guardiola's side have began to hit their straps with nine goals in their past two outings against Liverpool and Feyenoord . The victory took City atop the standings with four wins and a draw from five games. The visitors are huge favourites to claim a win at 4/11 odds. Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles proved the Magpies' hero once again as his second-half header earned a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Stoke.
Everton headed to Italy with the ambition of bringing three points home from their Europa League tie with Atalanta , however, they instead conceded three goals and put in one of their worst performances in recent memory.

After an Edwin Encarnacion walk, Jay Bruce pulled a ball fair into the right field corner, allowing Ramirez to race around to score and give the Indians their American League-record 22nd consecutive win. "That was a great atmosphere", manager Terry Francona said. I think we've had a couple 11-gamers along the way. Our algorithms expect Naquin to produce 2 hits, 1 walk and 1 RBI over only 8 plate appearances the rest of the year.
That's not good news for a team that allowed 10 - ten - sacks last week. As bad as the Texans looked, the Cincinnati Bengals were worse. My point here is that this could be (and needs to be) a get-well game for J.J. The Bengals only trailed 3-0 past the first-half two-minute warning , then gave up two touchdowns in a 30-second span and never mustered a comeback.
The Reds endured a nightmare on Saturday afternoon, as they suffered a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City , with Jurgen Klopp's defence being cut through at will in a disastrous showing.

It certainly looks like the Indians are the team to beat in the American League this year, so this upcoming postseason will sure be fun to watch and examine. Justin Verlander (11-8, 3.74) makes his second start for the Astros since being acquired in a waiver trade from Detroit. He's down. And he's been doing a real good job of staying down, and when he misses he doesn't miss by much.
The Reds boss opted to hand the Estonia worldwide his first Premier League appearance of the 2017-18 season for the trip to their title rivals at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne says beating the club's biggest rivals will be key to challenging for the Premier League title after Pep Guardiola's side swept Liverpool aside in impressive style.
A Celtic fan ran onto the Park Head pitch this evening to throw a kick at Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe , though fortunately he missed. With an aim of winning the Champions League , tonight's match against Celtic is very important for Unai Emery and his team. "We always have to be competitive and we weren't for that first period but the second half was much better and the supporters acknowledged that".
As the storm moves away from Florida, massive clean up efforts will have to take place. Powerful winds from Hurricane Irma battered Florida with forecasters warning of risky storm surges that will lead to massive flooding across the U.S.
We've got to go out there and stop the run. That may well have been the source of the apparent frustration Peterson displayed to Payton, as caught by ESPN's camera crew, late in the first half of what would become a 29-19 Vikings win.
Frontier Airlines has cancelled all flights in and out of TPA on Sunday and Monday, and Southwest Airlines has cancelled flights Saturday evening through Sunday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars used that to beat Houston 29-7 at NRG Stadium, and that's a sign the Jaguars may finally be starting to make progress in a rebuild that began four years ago.

But we'll take a win any day". All throughout the locker room and coating the walls of Halas Hall, there are words of motivation. "I feel like I'm in a really good place coming into this season".
Sunday's triumph featured standout players and left in its aftermath overarching themes. "Hello! You PLAY to WIN the GAME!" From the minute Sean McDermott arrived he has been about one thing over all else...the process. Notable play: Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor found Charles Clay in the end zone, but Clay took monster hit while trying to catch the ball. Despite the Bills' success , they still struggled with penalties.
Rodgers was sacked three four and tossed an early interception. The Packers meanwhile look to prove they are the class of the NFC once again but they will have some company, including the Seahawks , in what should be a very competitive season at the top of the hill.
The Philadelphia Eagles opened the new season with a bang after scoring a huge 30-17 victory over their division rival, the Washington Redskins , on Sunday. Wentz had ample time to let the ball go on multiple pass plays, but he held onto it far too long, which led to some close calls. They're a balanced offense.
That's such a reflection of the heart of our guys. USC's Sam Darnold, a preseason Heisman Trophy hopeful, got off to a slow start for the Trojans last week and will look to do better on the national stage tonight. Auburn QB Stidham has a lot of arm talent, but I was anxious to see how the Baylor transfer would handle pressure from elite defensive linemen who simply do not often play in the Big 12 .
